8:00 PM ET games

Chicago @ Nashville

Likely Chicago starter: Marty Turco (Source: Chris Kuc.)

Likely Nashville starter: Pekka Rinne – He’s only 3-4-2 so far this season. Should Anders Lindback get a few chances here and there? Well, not tonight. (Source: On the Forecheck.)

St. Louis @ Phoenix

Likely St. Louis starter: Ty Conklin – Sounds like a rare start for good ‘ol “Conkblock.” (Source: St. Louis Game Time.)

Likely Phoenix starter: Ilya Bryzgalov - He played in last night’s 5-4 win over the Calgary Flames, but he’s also far and away their best option in net so it’s not crazy to play him in back-to-backs. (Source: Phoenix Coyotes Web Site.)

10:00 PM ET game

Calgary @ San Jose

Likely Calgary starter: Miikka Kiprusoff – He might not be the best goalie in hockey, but he has the workload of the game’s best. (Source for both: David Pollak.)

Likely San Jose starter: Antti Niemi – Fellow Finn Niemi has one thing Kipper doesn’t: a Cup to his name. Then again, Kipper has something Niemi lacks: a firm grasp on the top goalie job. (Source for both: David Pollak.)

10:30 PM ET game

NY Islanders @ Los Angeles

Likely NY Islanders starter: Dwayne Roloson – For the most part, I don’t really think you can blame Roloson for the Islanders’ horrible (yet not-so-shocking) nine-game skid. (Source: Katie Strang.)

Likely Los Angeles starter: Jonathan Quick – He’s the best goalie that almost no one is talking about. (Source: Rich Hammond.)
